replace multiple strings in 100mb file

10 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi, i wrote a script that can replace multiple strings in a xml file works fine but so slow!

I've used StringReplace ,_ReplaceStringInFile, StringRegExpReplace, all the same very slow,.

The number of replacements in the file about 8000

Any help would be greatly appreciated

#include <File.au3>
$path = @ScriptDir & '\xmlfo.xml'
$OXML = FileOpen($path, 256)
$XML = FileRead($OXML)

$term = 'post'
$nofr = 1
Local $aArray = StringRegExp($XML, '(?s)<entry[^>]*>.*?</entry>', 3)
FileClose($OXML)
$XL = $XML
If Not @error Then
    For $i = 0 To UBound($aArray) - 1
        ;get data start
        ;ConsoleWrite ( $aArray[0] &' '&$i& @CRLF)
        $date = StringRegExp($aArray[$i], '(?i)<published>(.*?)</published>', 3)
        If @error Then
            $date = StringRegExp("date err", "(.{33,}?(?:\s)|.+)", 3)
        ElseIf Not @error Then
            ;ConsoleWrite($date[0] & ' ' & $i & @CRLF)
        EndIf
        $kind = StringRegExp($aArray[$i], '(?i)<category>(.*?)</category>', 3)
        If @error Then
            $kind = StringRegExp("kind err", "(.{33,}?(?:\s)|.+)", 3)
            ;ConsoleWrite ( $kind[0] &' '&$i& @CRLF)
        ElseIf Not @error Then
            ;ConsoleWrite ( $kind[0] &' '&$i& @CRLF)
        EndIf
        If $kind[0] = $term And Data(getdate($date[0], 'year'), getdate($date[0], 'month')) = True Then

            _ReplaceStringInFile($path, $aArray[$i], '')

            If Not @error Then
                ;MsgBox(16,'',$XL)
                ConsoleWrite($nofr & ' ' & $i & @CRLF)
                $nofr = $nofr + 1
            EndIf
            ;FileDelete(@ScriptDir & '\XML_output.xml')
            ;FileWrite (@ScriptDir & '\XML_output.xml', StringToBinary ( StringReplace($temp, $aArray[$i], "") , 4) )
        Else
            ConsoleWrite ('err0x0'& @CRLF)
        EndIf
    Next
EndIf

Well, you have a huge issue with loading and unloading 100mb's into memory over and over.

Every call to _ReplaceStringInFile opens the file twice.

So... 2 suggestions I can think of.

1.  Ditch _ReplaceStringInFile() and just read the file into memory once, enum each line, keep what you want, remove what you don't (would require a second string to write back to the file, I say a second string because _ArrayDelete ReDims the array every time).

2.  Read the file into chunks and repeat step 1.

Edit:

If this is some type of database script, sqlite would make a lot more sense.

DCCD,

See jdelaney's sig for working with XML files directly.

This : StringRegExp("date err", "(.{33,}?(?:s)|.+)", 3)

and this : StringRegExp("kind err", "(.{33,}?(?:s)|.+)", 3)

has not sense...

Can you post a sample of your XML file, and explain us what exactly you want to replace by what ?

You're going to have us guess without your code and an example file of what you've tried aren't you :( ... ?

each text string need to be replaced may contain more than 500 characters/numbers.

I'm sorry, I don't see the relevance to your statement/reply.

 

Edit:

This would speed up your script exponentially.

    For $i = 0 To UBound($aArray) - 1
        ;get data start
        ;ConsoleWrite ( $aArray[0] &' '&$i& @CRLF)
        $date = StringRegExp($aArray[$i], '(?i)<published>(.*?)</published>', 3)

    Next
EndIf

Global $ghOpen = FileOpen($path, $FO_UTF8_NOBOM + $FO_OVERWRITE)
FileWrite($ghOpen, $XML)
FileClose($ghOpen)

Here, as suggested before, we are only opening the file, reading the file, and writing to the file 1 time.

Your way, it was opening, reading to memory, writing as many times as the loop was long.

One thing is different, the FileOpen at the bottom of the script, you never told _ReplaceStringInFile how to write the data back to the file, so it was writing it regularly, I added $FO_UTF8_NOBOM strictly because that's how you opened it before in your code example.

So you may want to backup your xml file before using this code (just FYI).

      Haven't had much time to code recently. However the following thread inspired me.
      The debate about linear, parallel and binary search methods was rather interesting and, in an attempt to be diplomatic, I decided to combine @jchd's suggestion with @LarsJ's binary search example. I decided that the binary search algorithm required modification to make it more linear. As usual, 'if you invent something, it probably already exists and if it already exists, it exists for a reason'. My first attempt was not all that good. The code worked but was really a mess. I blame peer pressure (to post an example of a parallel search method).  I will delete that old code in due course.
      With a little memory jogging and a glance at the help file, the solution turned out to be quite easy: I just needed a better understanding of Euler. Further modification will be needed to work with more complicated unicode strings. The output could be returned as an array or a delimitered string. I'm not so interested in those details. I'm just going to post the algorithm for now and anyone, who wants to, can modify it to suit their needs. Both arrays must contain at least 1 element.
      Local $aFoo = [0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,19,20,23,24,26,30,35,39,40,41] Local $aBar = [0,1,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,17,18,19,21,24,25,26,27,34,35,38,40] ParallelExponetialSearch($aFoo, $aBar) ; Compares two lists - returning positive matches. Each input array must be unique (individually) and in alphabetical order. Func ParallelExponetialSearch($aFoo, $aBar) Local $sFind, _ $iMin_F = -1, $iMax_F = UBound($aFoo) -1, $Lo_F = $iMin_F, $Hi_F, _ $iMin_B = -1, $iMax_B = UBound($aBar) -1, $Lo_B = $iMin_B, $Hi_B While $iMin_F < $iMax_F And $iMin_B < $iMax_B ; Toggle Arrays - Which array has most untested elements? This is the one we want to search next, ; so we can bypass more comparisons because (in theory) mismatches have a greater chance of being skipped. If $iMax_F - $iMin_F >= $iMax_B - $iMin_B Then ; $aFoo has more (or an equal number of) untested elements $Hi_F = $iMax_F $iMin_B += 1 $sFind = $aBar[$iMin_B] While $Lo_F < $Hi_F ; search $aFoo For $i = 0 To Floor(Log($Hi_F - $Lo_F) / Log(2)) $Lo_F = $iMin_F + 2^$i If $aFoo[$Lo_F] = $sFind Then $iMin_F = $Lo_F ; each match should be added to the output [perhaps an array] ConsoleWrite($sFind & " found at $aFoo[" & $Lo_F & "] = $aBar[" & $iMin_B & "]" & @LF) ExitLoop 2 ElseIf $aFoo[$Lo_F] > $sFind Then $Hi_F = $Lo_F -1 $iMin_F += Floor(2^($i -1)) $Lo_F = $iMin_F ContinueLoop 2 EndIf Next $iMin_F = $Lo_F ; minimum increment is one WEnd Else ; $aBar has more untested elements $Hi_B = $iMax_B $iMin_F += 1 $sFind = $aFoo[$iMin_F] While $Lo_B < $Hi_B ; search $aBar For $i = 0 To Floor(Log($Hi_B - $Lo_B) / Log(2)) $Lo_B = $iMin_B + 2^$i If $aBar[$Lo_B] = $sFind Then $iMin_B = $Lo_B ; each match should be added to the output [perhaps an array] ConsoleWrite($sFind & " found at $aFoo[" & $iMin_F & "] = $aBar[" & $Lo_B & "]" & @LF) ExitLoop 2 ElseIf $aBar[$Lo_B] > $sFind Then $Hi_B = $Lo_B -1 $iMin_B += Floor(2^($i -1)) $Lo_B = $iMin_B ContinueLoop 2 EndIf Next $iMin_B = $Lo_B ; minimum increment is one WEnd EndIf WEnd EndFunc ;==> ParallelExponetialSearch I hope this will be useful to someone. I believe it deserved a thread of its own!

      Afternoon!
      I have a requirement to return both a string and an array from a function so as a result I put them both into an array and returned that.  I can access them in their entirety after returning them but then I can't seem to access the array elements after this.  Should I be able to or is there a prettier way?
      #include <Array.au3> ;Memory info returned as a string and an array $memoryInfo = _getMemoryInfo() msgbox(0,"Memory Info",$memoryInfo[0]) _ArrayDisplay($memoryInfo[1],"Memory as an Array") Local $newArray[7] $memoryInfo[1] = $newArray msgbox(0,"Test element",$newArray[0]) _ArrayDisplay($newArray) Func _getMemoryInfo() Local $newArray[7] Local $array = MemGetStats() $newArray[0] = $array[0] ;% of memory in use $newArray[1] = Round($array[1]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Total physical RAM $newArray[2] = Round($array[2]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Availaible physical RAM $newArray[3] = Round($array[3]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Total pagefile $newArray[4] = Round($array[4]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Available pagefile $newArray[5] = Round($array[5]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Total virtual $newArray[6] = Round($array[6]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Available virtual $memoryUsage = $newArray[1] - $newarray[2] $pagefileUsage = $newArray[3] - $newarray[4] ;Output/Return Local $returnArray[2] $returnArray[0] = "Memory: " & $memoryUsage & " GB/" & $newArray[1] & " GB " & @CRLF & "Pagefile: " & $pagefileUsage & " GB/" & $newArray[3] & " GB " $returnArray[1] = $newArray return $returnArray EndFunc A bit messy but hopefully it's understandable what I'm trying to achieve.
      Thanks!

      I am having difficulties getting updated results from GUICtrlCreateInput. I wrote a small script to demonstrate what I am trying to do.
      This script reads a text file into an array and displays the Name and Number from the text file.
      The user can check a name and change the number, and the results are displayed in _ArrayDisplay.
      Only the Checked names are displayed in their original position. This is necessary for future
      plumbing.
      The problem with this script is the original number is returned, not the changed number. I cannot
      figure out how to get the updated number to be displayed.

      I am working on a Video Player Test Script. I am reading a text file into a 3d array to be displayed in a GUI.
      Array Content:
      [x][0]FileName.mp4
      [x][1]UsageCount -> Up to a 4 digit number
      [x][2]EnableUsageCount (True/False)
      In the GUI the user can check the filename box, edit the number of usages and check EnableUsageCount to turn on the UsageCount control using the UsageCount number for the maximum number of plays.
      To make this easier to deal with I have removed the EnableUsageCount section, and am just concentrating on getting a method to put the edited (or unchanged) UsageCount in the array. Currently nothing is read into the array, due to my using the wrong method in the Case statement.
      Here are code snippets of what I am trying to do:

      is wrong, and this is what I am looking for help with. Instead of $GUI_CHECKED what should I be looking for?
      The worst part of this is I had this working late last night, and then lost my changes and cannot for the life of me remember how I had this working.
      Help is truly appreciated!
